My DIY Russian Dolls

These Russian dolls…

Everything started when I saw a bunch of Russian “Comtesse Sofia” scarves on fashion blogs. Yes, they are beautiful and I am leering at them with envy. But they are quite out of my budget for now, so I designed these little Russian doll pendants to stay in the Russian spirit. This made me go back to my childhood, when I used to make my own paper dolls (Barbies? Don’t give a ****!). Then I would use them so much that I had to make-believe play a surgeon with tape to fix them. If only I had known resin at this time: I could have made super durable dolls, like these pendants. Anyways, it was good to play with dolls again. And guess what? I even gave them names! Which one do you prefer?

Then I stuck them on black foam and assembled them to make a necklace with a colored string. The little leather tassles were found at Loisirs & Création. I found similar ones on A Little Mercerie website.

DIY Stars Shirt

Stars on my shirt!

chemise DIY ClemmoHappy Sunday, everyone! Let me present you my latest DIY: the stars shirt!

I looked for a shirt with stars on it for a while, but I couldn’t find one that I liked. Finally, I decided to make it myself with a “textile painter” pen. I like the result, but I won’t lie to you: this DIY is more risky than it appears.

First, I had to beg someone to be my model and wear the shirt as I was painting it: John. He was not that happy about it, but I convinced him with a chocolate mousse and TV. One episode of South Park later, it was done. It is tricky to draw quickly enough so that the ink doesn’t expand everywhere on the fabric. With a thick fabric, the paint is usually not uniform; on a light one, the color expands in the fabric and the result is ugly. To prevent this, work quickly but make sure your strokes are precise. I recommend trying the pen on a fabric sample before drawing on the shirt so you know how the ink behaves. Here is my result!

Hello!

Today I am pleased to present you this fluffy DIY I had in my head for a few month. With the end of the summer, I am anticipating the cosy needs of your feet.  With these furry slippers, your feet will stay warm and purrrr. You may remember these fluffy shoes we saw at Celine’s last spring catwalk? Yes, the ones that created a buzz because nobody knows if they are genius or the summum of bad taste. Me, I say it’s all about comfort! Even the famous French blogger Garance Doré adopted them here!

Pink Flamingo toppers – Free Printable

Welcome to las vegas Hello hello, welcome to fabulous Las Vegas!

As you can guess: I just came back from Las Vegas, and it was sparkly and excessive, in other words: totally awesome. To honor the famous “Flamingo hotel”, one of the first to settle on the Las Vegas “Strip”, I want to offer you these flamingo toppers to print. You just need to print them on sticker paper, cut them carefully and put them on a stick.

I added a few pictures of the trip. I did an international star caprice to adopt a pink flamingo from the tropical garden but the hotel staff called security.

If you want to adopt a flamingo and be a rebel, share, like, tweet and comment this article!
